One of the best ways to improve your online income is to read other successful blogs. In your niche, you should be connecting and networking with bloggers by reading, commenting, and sharing their blog posts. Not only will most do the same for you, but you could learn new things from the reading.


Since I have really started focusing on Online Income Mom, I have been reading more blogs that discuss making money online, growing blog traffic and being more productive. I have them all listed in a (free) Feedly account, so I can quickly see who has updated each day.

Below are my favorite bloggers that share their expertise on Blogging, Social Media, and Working from Home. Many share what’s work for them in income reports, or helpful tip and list articles to help you grow your online business.

11 Successful Blogs on Building an Online Income You Should be Reading


1. Single Moms Income

Alexa has been blogging for a few years, and her blog contains a wealth of information for making money online. Even if you aren’t a single mother, you can benefit from the topics she covers. I love seeing her monthly income reports – they are very inspirational!

2. Twins Mommy

This blog is quickly becoming a very successful website. Elna got her start in freelance writing but is slowly transitioning to making more money with blogging and product creation. She shares a monthly blog growth update, so you can see firsthand what she is doing.  I have also enjoyed her posts on email marketing. That’s something I have always struggled with, so it’s great to get so much insight from Elna.

3. Moms Make Cents

Also a newer blog, but McKinzie is killing it with her Pinterest strategies. I love how transparent she is in what works for her to grow traffic and subscribers. I have been on Pinterest for years but still benefit from reading the tips she shares here.

4.  Making Sense of Cents

This blog is a powerhouse! Michelle originally started to blog about personal finance, which she still does, but she also shares how anyone can start a blog that makes money. Michelle currently makes over $100,000 per month through blogging…with about $50,000 of that being from affiliate marketing each month. I took her affiliate marketing course that she recently released, and it has helped me improve my strategy when it comes to promoting other people’s products and services.

5. Real Ways to Earn Money Online

Anna has been blogging since 2010, and shares hundreds of ways that you can work and make money from home. Over 28,000 subscribers receive her weekly newsletter with job leads and other helpful information. Anytime I hear about a new online opportunity, I check Anna’s website to see if she has reviewed it. I trust her opinion and use her blog for research when deciding where to spend my time!

6.  The Busy Budgeter

While Rosemarie’s main focus is on budgeting and saving money, she also has a lot of posts on making money from home. She has been blogging about two years, and currently, makes five figures a month from The Busy Budgeter! I love learning from her since her site became one of the more successful blogs in a relatively short amount of time…some bloggers don’t reach that level until 4-5 years in.

7. The Work from Home Wife

Like me, Angie has been working from home since 2007. She got her start as a virtual assistant but later started blogging to help other make money online. She offers a number of topics that you can learn in order to build an online income, including blogging, freelance writing, selling on eBay, and more.

8. What Mommy Does

I had the pleasure of meeting Lena at a blogging conference last year, and have been following her fabulous blog ever since. She is a CPA turned stay at home mom, and this woman knows her stuff when it comes to making money with blogging! Her first ebook chronicles how she took her blog from 17K to 350K page views in 9 months. It is definitely an eye-opening read, as is all of her posts about making money!

9. Believe in a Budget

Kristin is simply amazing! She can teach you how to start a side hustle or how to rock Pinterest. I have her Pinterest templates for Canva and they are amazing! I use them for the pinnable images you see on the blog here. Her monthly income reports are super inspiring, detailing how she’s making the shift from freelancing to passive income with products!

10. Redefining Mom

Not only does Monica talk about building an online income, she provides very helpful spreadsheets to help you organize your life and business! I love being a part of her Facebook group which is all about helping busy moms building their online incomes!

11. Horkey Handbook

Gina is another blogger that got her start with freelance writing. She was making $4000/month within the first six months of building her freelancing business. Now, she teaches others how to become a freelancer and a VA with her courses.

I am actually in her freelance writing course, and I can tell you first hand it’s awesome. It starts with the basics and works you up to creating a presence online and pitching clients so you can be successful with your business. You can get a free writing course from her too!

    Well, I have been a consistent reader of Horkey Handbook, but haven’t read any of the other blogs, as I do not like reading, but I have to make it a habit to reach another level in Blogging.

    So, thanks for listing these Blogs.

    Keep Up the good work.
